Try modifying the auto-conversion settings for the device profile as follows:
- For supported formats on device: disable all video formats
- For 'Convert the following formats...': disable any rules regarding video conversion

That should result in sync skipping any video files.

You may have set one (or more) to use Entire Library instead of Music. Or have included videos in the Music Collection.

From http://forum.mediamonkey.com/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=67762:

I am running into this with the latest version - somehow the selection criteria is being evaluated a little differently, so now one of my Auto Playlists is picking up some videos.
The problem is, I don't know which one(s): the error messages in both MMA & MMW gives zero track or playlist information. So I just kept canceling the sync.
MMA="Waiting for track to convert", but no track or playlist information included
MMW="No codec found" - but for WHAT? NO other information is given.

How am I supposed to debug this on my own without being able to tell which playlist and track it's trying to sync?

Per the thread linked above, I understand what he was asking: I don't want to sync video to my phone. At all. Ever.

How can I just set a preference somewhere that says "don't sync video"?

FYI I sync ~50 Auto Playlists that use "Last Played", track count limits, and random order to mix things up (this makes GREAT playlists).
The PROBLEM is that whenever I select the playlist, I get a different list (as designed): but this means there's no way to tell which of the playlists was the problem playlist.

So, again, I need a blanket setting to disable syncing or converting any video.

Thanks



I finally figured out how to get past
